I love this car. I have had it for 4
months and have not seen a single one
like it, there are other is300's out
there but no wagons. Very few can say
they have such a unique and head-
Handling is very nible. The car is so
responsive that you don't feel like you
are driving this car so much as
mentally willing it to move. It makes
my daily commute enjoyable and everyone
I know likes it.
It is fast. I topped it out at 137, it
would have gone faster if it did not
have 500lb in cargo at the time. It has
lots of low end power. VROOM!!!
The e-shift is *fun* and useful,
especially for sudden bursts of speed
when passing. Fuel economy is mediocre.
Overall great driving experience,
handles well with plenty of
acceleration when you need it. Quality
throughout, with great sport suspension
albeit on the firm side. Quite ride on
the highways, minimal tire/wind noise,
and nice throaty exhaust only during
quick 0-60mph gas pedal action.
I have had this car for 14 months. It
still attracts attention here in Los
Angeles and is alot of fun to drive.
Tested it in rural New Mexico where it
handled very well on a straight
stretch of open road at 130 mph. The
car apparently was not designed for
sport conditions as I have beat the
hell out of the front dam on curbs
and crossing intersections in the city
and the 'cute' low profile tires do not
hold up to either urban or cross
country conditions. Why call it a
sportscross if you can't drive it that
way without the tires falling apart!!!!
I had this car for 1 week, my wife and
I love driving it, we also own BMW 5
series, it is definitly not a BMW, but
different kind of fun car to drive
around. It is a good experience for
us, much better than any Toyota cars
